Will Greenwood podcast:

Gatland told the Will Greenwood podcast: “I’ve spoken to Stuart and we’ve had a couple of conversations

You must show some respect for Stuart. He got done with England, at that point he’s disappeared and he’s done some expert development. There’s no uncertainty what he’s done and the effect that he’s had since his time with Leinster.

He’d state that he’s certainly improved as a mentor and I have a gigantic measure of regard for him.We met before the last visit and he addressed me about his sentiments on the Leinster players and the Irish players. He gave me knowledge into them and I valued that.

“He’s one person that I’ve spoken to and had a couple of conversations with him, but there are many other people that I’ll be looking to talk to.”

Gatland also gave assurances about Saracens players. Players who ply their trade in English rugby’s second tier next season will not be disadvantaged in Lions tour selection.

“It’s not as if those players aren’t experienced or haven’t achieved at the highest level,” he said.

Furthermore, a great deal of them who have been engaged with England or been on past Lions visits have been especially at the head of the game.

“So I don’t have any concerns and worries about what state they’re going to be in, because I think they’re going to get enough top-level rugby before the tour.”
